Again, was the feedback "you didn't express enough interest," or "your credentials are too good for us"?
"your credentials are too good for us" type stuff, i.e. "with your grades, we thought you'd go to Firm X or Y"
I genuinely believe that's just a failure on the interviewer's part to convince. If a firm really wants you, and they sense you have better offers, at least for all the situations I've heard from other firms and at my firm, they'll try extra hard to recruit you.
Well, surely you must have some anecdotal evidence for us also. So far you've been talking about V10 firms. Why don't you tell us about your buddy with a Cravath offer and also an offer from a non vault 100 firm.
